Altenew Sweet Spray

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

Altenew sent me this fantastic stamp, die, stencil and embossing folder set
and asked me to design some cards with it.  This is a set that is exclusive to

What a treat!

First off...

I inked the stamp twice with Pumice Stone Distress ink and stamped on a piece of
watercolor paper.  Then I used my Altenew 36 Color Watercolor set to color.

The die came in handy for cutting it out and the background was embossed with
the beautiful 3D embossing folder.

After assembling, I used a white gel pen to add a few dots and heat embossed and 
die cut the sweet little sentiment.

Next up...

I embossed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock with this awesome
embossing folder and using the stencils as a guide, brushed some ink on the flowers
on one corner.  I brushed color on a leftover strip of Neenah for the dividing strip.

Finally for a softer look...

I embossed and diagonally cut another piece of white cardstock and used the stencil
to color on corner with Altenew Detail Blending Brushes.  

I cut the other corner with a Nesting Slim Labels Die and left it white.

I used the next larger die to cut a piece of vellum and mounted the embossed label, 
cut a small hole in the top and inserted the little bookmark in the pocket.

Thank you to Altenew for this opportunity to Guest Design for you.
I love this sweet set!

All 3 of these cards are absolutely BEAUTIFUL Bonnie, and Altenew sure knew what they were doing when they sent this set to you to play with! You have made it SHINE in all 3 cards and showed the versatility with each one too! I'm especially loving the 3rd card with the mostly white design and just a touch of color in the one corner...soooooo pretty! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! Hugs. :0)
